Busy, Busy!

I have been beyond busy this week, and I cannot yet see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have cleaning, baking and crafting yet to get done, all before this weekend. We have my family coming to our house on Friday. I love to host, but at the same time, I know I over stress myself with things. Yay, for the holidays!! ;)
Anyways, here are some of the things that I have been working on. Mostly baking, but there were a few crafty things in there, including this card using a Market Street stamp. I used the Computer Cutie set for this card, along with some My Mind's Eye paper. This little computer is completely adorable!
The girls did the decorating, while I did the baking. Brianna usually gets bored pretty fast when decorating, while Abby can go all day until she can no longer move because of the build up of frosting all over her body.
The Peanut Butter Cup Cookies are a must for Abby. I think that they are the thing she looks forward to most this time of year. I don't know why I only make them at Christmas, but they are an anytime cookie.
The Chocolate Meringues are a must for Brian. They are the only fat free cookie that I make, so these are usually gone pretty fast.
And last, but not least, are the Mint Chocolate Meringues. These are Brianna's favorites, but they usually don't last long, because nobody can usually resist them (except me.) I am not really a cookie fan except for my Grandma's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies.
On to this last picture. Can you guess what this is? It was my attempt at peanut brittle. I remember always looking forward to my Dad's peanut brittle when I was a kid, and it has been a really long time since I have had some, so I thought I would try my hand at it. I got to tell you, I don't think I will ever try it again. Even though this does not look very appealing, it actually tastes like peanut brittle without the feeling that you are going to chip a tooth. I am sure that I did not heat it long enough, but oh well, maybe nest time. (Or not)
I am not sure if I will get a chance to post again before the holidays, except for the drawing at 2 p.m. on Saturday for the third and final Holiday Spirit Giveaway. This week's prize will be a Peachy Keen Snow Cutie Assortment Set. All you have to do for a chance to win is be a follower. Good luck everyone!
Have a very happy and safe holidays everyone!!
